It’s completely absurd alright

Strong words from a WorldNetDaily reader:

Calling for Rumsfeld’s resignation over the abuse by a few soldiers is like calling for the head of the CEO of a major corporation if some of the cleaning crew is found stealing or using the computers for porn. Corporate America wouldn’t stand for it, nor could they afford to. It would be considered completely absurd.

Because if there’s anything that closely resembles downloading porn from the internet, it’s this:

Spec. Jeremy C. Sivits, one of the seven members of the 372nd Military Police Company facing charges in the case, told investigators in a sworn statement that other prison guards forced detainees to strip, masturbate and pile on top of one another. Staff Sgt. Ivan L. “Chip” Frederick II forced two detainees to punch each other, Sivits told investigators, according to a transcript.

In another instance, he said, Spec. Charles A. Graner Jr. put a sandbag over a detainee’s head and “punched the detainee with a closed fist so hard in the temple that the detainee was knocked unconscious.” […]

Davis, 26, then stomped “on either the fingers or toes of the detainees,” he said, causing them to “scream loudly.” Sivits said Frederick later hit a detainee in the chest “for no reason.” […]

At another point, he said, a detainee with gunshot wounds to his leg was handcuffed to a bed. Graner then apparently picked up an object and struck the man’s wounds “with a half baseball swing,” Sivits said. The detainee begged Graner to stop, saying, ” ‘Mister, Mister please stop,’ or words to that effect.” [Emphasis added]
